When I'm a parent I'll call my kids by their online handles and make fun of them

Re: Official WWE 13 Thread
There are a few small aspects that could potentially turn my expectations around for not picking up this game (though some of this may seem a bit too online-heavy, seeing as how I was once in a online PS3 league that made this look more technical than you think):
1) Limitations on the altering of attributes. To actually allow online players to be outright given the privilege to make their CAWs and default characters human gods is just unnecessary kiss-assery for those with the lack of actual skill. If these characters are going to have high attributes online, then they also have to be earned online.
2) Recovery rates. The next time you hit someone with a finisher in WWE '12 (as unlikely as that may be), I want you to literally count the amount of seconds they stay down for. At the very best, I can guarantee you'll reach 15 seconds. Now, though this may speed up gameplay as you're not waiting for them to stand up once again, it can also make it last for-fucking-ever if you're in a multi-man match, where there will constantly be someone stopping a pinfall or submission from happening because someone's timing was slightly off. As well as this, it makes it downright impossible half the time if you really want to experiment with some spots, but are constantly interrupted by the guy standing up without a scratch on him, ready to tear you apart. If a finisher is hit, the receiver should stay down for as long as it looks in real life, by which I mean 30-60seconds at least.
3) R2/RT as the reversal button. No matter what console it's on, the right thumbstick is the most laggiest button on a gamepad. Hence one must question the logic as to why reversing, one of the most time-precise moves in the game, was allocated to this. The R1/RB button would be far better, or even one of the face buttons.
4) Vote to kick players. Pretty self-explanatory. There will always be that one dick who's only purpose is to ruin someone else's day.
Won't complain about commentary since I have it muted most of the time. Have absolutely no hope for it ever being good.
